One day Ming, mentioned Gina, her mother’s friend, when she was describing this really cool thing called a "Surprise Ball" that Gina had made for her and her brother when she was a kid. Surprise Ball? What is that? After a few weeks, Gina wrote that she had sent Ming and I a package - a Surprise Ball for each of us. You know, I look at A LOT of stuff all the time but this was REALLY cool, like goo-goo eyes, whoa-ness. I asked Gina about them, she summed it up so well I have to quote her here: “From as far back as I can remember, be it a ring from a gum-ball vending machine, a Cracker Jack prize, the thrill of a piñata, Christmas stocking treats, I have always been drawn to small things. The desire to include items that are ephemeral, whimsical, charming and/or amusing set mine apart from others - this is what I hope. It’s the quality of the goods (and sometimes the rarity) that matters...for some it may be hard to open (and I kind of like that) but people are never disappointed by what they find inside.” Have fun opening it and finding a minimum of 15 surprises.  Every object is a rare thing, mostly vintage trinkets from all over the world. Either give it to one person to enjoy or share around the table, passing things on, spreading the joy, unwinding and passing around and around. 12/6: Yep, we sold out again and we can't get Gina to make more until next year. Everyone does what they can do! The good news is our pals over at the shop Neighbour have some in stock, check: https://www.shopneighbour.com/products/gina-namkung-surprise-ball

Sorry! Sold out!
